Speaking of slice coal station: immerse yourself in the history of "black gold". It is exciting and funny at the same time to literally experience the life of the former coal miners with the bicycle draisione.
A little further down the river, quite at the other end of the Trattnach, there is the Trattnachtal nature trail.

Rest benches and tables invite you to rest and picnic. Open all year.
From the valley station of the summer toboggan and adventure mountain railway, the year-round Path of the Senses runs as a circular route with a total of 3.5 km along 25 stations through the Hausruckwald to the panoramic lookout tower on the Luisenhoehe adventure mountain. Experience, feel and enjoy nature is the focus of this very unusual route. In the warm half of the year there is also fun with summer tobogganing or in the forest high ropes park.
Those who prefer pedaling instead of walking are on the many cycle paths - the Vitalwelt cycle path network extends over 300 km! - in good hands. No own bike with you? - No problem! Simply rent bicycles at the tourist information in Bad Schallerbach. For children and adults.
It will be exciting for children during the summer holidays when they are equipped with magnifying glasses and landing nets to explore life in and on the Trattnach as water researchers.
The attraction for the little visitors is the children's farm with small animals to stroke. Also the children's tractor course is always fun. Parents can relax in the directly connected café. Where? - In the children's farm in the Bad Schallerbacher Botanica-Park.
It is much more extensive here: In the zoo and aquazoo Schmiding you will meet over 2,000 animals from all over the world, Austria's only gorillas, giraffes, rhinos, colorful flamingos or reef sharks. Attention: Visiting the Schmiding zoo takes longer than originally planned because there is so much to discover. Absolutely great children's playgrounds and the large trampoline included. The Evolution Museum, which is directly connected to the Aquazoo, presents the history of human origins through to robotics and artificial intelligence in an extremely impressive way.
